Vocational Education for the Disadvantaged, A New Dimension.
This report is meant to be a tool for the recognition and resolution of a major concern at Los Angeles City College--vocational education programs for the disadvantaged. It is intended to help the college develop programs in which the disadvantaged can successfully function and from which he can enter the world of work as a competent and skilled individual. The results include the following: (1) findings from a review of the existing vocational education curricula, (2) an in-depth discussion of the national concern of vocational education for the disadvantaged, (3) suggested solutions to problems, (4) an analysis of the college community population, (5) labor market trends and needs, (6) program planning, development and operation, (7) curriculum development and coordination, (8) guidance and counseling services, (9) an educational model, (10) public information, (11) future plans and needs, and (12) an evaluation. Specifically the report contains three sections. Section I is concerned with forming a general or philosophical base for programs. Section II incorporates much of the documentation that is essential in establishing the validity and justification for the programs. Section III presents the specific model and the overall programs for use by the College as a guideline in their formulation of a long-range plan for vocational education for the disadvantaged.
